I wouldn't advise listening to Pillow Queens in that case. They really go hard on the Dub accent.I find the guys voice really overly "Dub" at times to the point wheres it's annoying. I've no idea how non irish people would take to that?
Probably wouldn’t even notice it.I find the guys voice really overly "Dub" at times to the point wheres it's annoying. I've no idea how non irish people would take to that?
Oh right, yeah. That’s more about the delivery than the accent. Which is a bit unusual. Also reminds me of Mark E Smith actually.I don't know. Seems like he's just talking sometimes instead of actually singing.
Oh no, I'm a PQ fan for sure. Seen them 5/6 times now. @Massive Spanner said he doesn't like the fact Grian sings in a thick Dublin accent and I was just making the point that Pam in PQ does too, which can sometimes be a bit overbearing. I prefer when Sarah sings.No love for Pillow Queens?
Hahaha no worries. You’re a man of taste and my cousin is in Pillow Queens so was double checking!
Ooiiiim nah a rah, if yooiir nah a rah...
Psh, don't be listening to Hanratty, although he's a United fan so I'll forgive his musical opinions.I just heard this exact line in a podcast
Do you podcast, Zebs?
To be fair, there's a lot of musicians I know who have a problem with them over the Noisey article and would agree with the joe.ie one.
Nice to see them getting positive attention from the likes of Pitchfork, BBC, Guardian, Stereogum, Noisey and the rest.
Though, Ireland being Ireland, there's already articles like this:
Just got round to listening to Dogrel and I have to say Mark E Smith with a thick Irish brogue came immediately to mind, especially on Cha Cha Cha. Very good album.Oh right, yeah. That’s more about the delivery than the accent. Which is a bit unusual. Also reminds me of Mark E Smith actually.
Still listening to the album now. It’s really solid. No weak tunes at all.
Girl Band pre-released new stuff about two days ago. Already gone, with another 350 made.Fontaines seem to have let it drop that Girl band are about to get back on the road and that they'll be playing with them. That would be pretty cool. Although it'll have to be in the 3 arena at the rate the hype machine is working.
